This activity can help you teach and review the proper way to take care of library books with the younger grades using the book "The Shelf Elf" by Jackie Mims Hopkins. I typically do this activity with 2nd grade.
Here’s what's included:
*Front and back cover in color and black and white.
*Ten pages with 2 sides for students to illustrate. (This gives you a total of 20 different pages for the students.)
*One blank page for students to write their own examples.
*An additional sorting activity on the do's and don'ts of library book care.
Once students illustrate their 1/2 page, you can staple their pages inside the covers, and give the book to the students to keep in their classroom or keep them in the library for students to read. (This book is similar to my other product Library Lion Class Book that I use with 1st grade.)
I hope you find this useful!
